I enjoy Jeff Mariotte's writing style very much, and the "William" Riker half of this novel makes for a pleasant, if unexciting story. Certainly nothing blood-pumping happens until Riker's assignment to USS Pegasus.

However, there are two things impeding my ability to enjoy this novel. The first is that, no matter how smooth the writing, there's nothing interesting or fascinating about the "Kyle" Riker half of the novel. I just can't get worked up about him, no matter how much I might try. The se

A decent enough bit of Star Trek 'history,' this is one of the 'Lost Era' books, which take us to periods between the original series and prior to the Next Generation.

This book explores Kyle Riker (Will Riker's father), and the reasons he took off and left this son, what really happened at Starbase 311, and other bits of trek detritus, that, while making for a bit of a mind-candy style read, didn't quite have any... well... importance to them. I closed the book, annoyed at the forced cameos, and
Not a good book. The main characters are Will Riker and his father, Kyle. Neither of which were very interesting in this book. There's some conspiracy with the Tholians that I didn't get, and Will is at the academy. Clearly, this was a Lost Era for a reason.
Yep, so I like Star Trek. For some reason I'm embarrassed of this fact...perhaps rightly so, because when I do tell people they laugh. Well, I didn't read anything Star Trek at all in all of 2007, basically just so that I wouldn't have to post it on my xanga site.

Anyway, this one is from a fun little series that tells the stories of some of our favorite heroes in between the years of the original season and the next generation. Deny thy father is a bit weird though, because it tells parallel sto
